Hi

I’m selling a Carlton carerra 531 road bike. These bikes are pretty well known in retro circles.

531c frame and 531c chrome forks

Campagnolo drop outs

Original Weimann Rims on shimano Golden arrow hubs.

Shimano Golden arrow rear and front derailler.

Chainset is Shimano 600 ax and pedals are 600Ax which I now understand are rare.

Gear levers and brakes Shimano golden arrow.

The seat is not original, but is a very nice Brooks.

The other change is the bike has flat bars. I have used it just to tootle around on and the flat bars were nicer.

Other than that it’s a size 21.5 and paint work is in good condition. There are a few minor blemishes but nothing serious. Decals all still good.

It’s a very nice bike that rides nicely.

Selling to make room.

I’m in Hornsea and have a bikebox so happy to post.

Price £270

Thanks

Beautiful bikes, loved these and the Kermesse.

If I had any space I'd have it! GLWS.

Depends on overall condition, but £200 might be a good start?

Ok I was thinking a bit more, but appreciate your message.

It’s a cracker to be fair and it’s one of those situations.

I collect Bianchis now and would like a Celeste via Nirone swap if anybody interested

Chainset and pedals are ax not ex. The ax grouppo was meant to be more aero than ex. Good ones are quite rare, but the oversize pedal threads are either loved or hated

The kit engraved with an arrow is Shimano Golden Arrow and not Arabesque. :)

Hi,
Is this still for sale?
Would be good to know the spacing for the rear drop out as I might look to modernise later down the road...
Cheers,
Mike
